My husband and I just moved to Ottawa exactly last yr. We’ve been staycationing since because… why not! 🙂 We are very lucky to live close to where tourists go and spend hundreds of dollars on sites and experiences.
Notre Dame Basilica is one of Ottawa’s landmark one can’t miss. With it’s neoclassical architecture, it’s an art lover’s dream and really transports you to the 19th century. Although, we didn’t do the tour, the Cathedral offers individual or group guided tours. I’d go back there and attend a mass or two.
